That's an interesting collection of records. Thanks for the link. He uses very large styli. I presume he means mil rather than mm. It's useful that he gives the equalization parameters used. Sometimes I have problems deciding on the best ones to use.

What a lovely little web site! I especially like his setup with multiple arms, I guess you could pick the best sound for a given record, or even combine together some how.

Regarding EQing, fair play to the purists out there who go to such trouble. I simply don't have the time to mess about with such things, nor do I have a decent equaliser to do it.

What I do, and I find is an all round good solution for me, I use a Stanton 500 magnetic cartridge with 3 mil(?) stylus run into a DJ mixer. I simply roll off the highs to tame the surface noise, and boost the mid range.

Purely as a thought-experiment: Just as people 'burn' digital music-downloads to CDs so they can be played on legacy CD-players in cars etc, I wonder if anyone's seriously worked out how to 'burn' compilation 78s from these sorts of downloadable-digital sources?

To get the grooves right you'd need a *very* high-accuracy 3D printer
